Abscess... I'm almost positive I have one.

Well after two weeks I STILL have a know under my skin. It feels the size of quarter, but its hard and it has not gotten infected at all. It is just tender, but does not diminish in size.

Hopefully, the doctor will be able to drain it out.

Anybody ever had one?

I've got one right on top of my left wrist right at the joint. If I bend my wrist all the way back or all the way forwards it protrudes (sp?) out. Mine started off small and has gotten bigger of the past few months. There's alot of discomfort and pain on some days. I looked online to see what it could be and I'm pretty sure it's either that or a ganglion cyst.

Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel, "Pick up your shovel, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land." Nearly 75 years ago, Roosevelt said,"Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a camel, this is the Promised Land." Now Obama has stolen your shovel..., taxed your asses, raised the price of camels and mortgaged the Promised Land!

My little boy had one. Felt bad for him to cuz it was in a bad spot. Was on a limp node in his neck. It ended just being abscess. They just made a little slit and let it drain. Healed pretty good.

Good luck, man.

I had a ganglion cyst on both wrists and one on the top of my foot removed..
The ones on my wrists started showing up when I was about 8 or so. Had them removed about 5 years ago. Hasnt come back...yet

Is it from an injection site? Is it hot or running a fever in the area?

Keep heat on the area and massage it out. You may of injected into the fatty/lean tissue area. Get longer needles.

I went to the doc. He couldnt drain anything out and said it might be from inflammation around the injection spot.

I have been putting heat and I am on 2 types of antibiotics hopefully it will go away.

I am in some pain

Sounds like you didn't get into the muscle enough. I had one bad one on my ass years ago, felt hot as hell..size of a baseball and hurt to sit down
Went away after about 2 weeks, switch up your sites and make sure you're using a needle long enough to get into the muscle you're injecting in

Always do........ I think doing more than 2CC's is just asking for trouble

Hopefully it'll starts shrinking soon.

Anybody else use any other home remedies?

Depends on what muscle, some can handle that and more but some can barely handle that much.
I used heat/cold on mine and took baths for about a week to let it soak

For glutes yes, but 1inch will work fine for all other spot injection areas

Are you actually training for something or just doing this to look better? Just curious I don't see that shooting up could be worth it for me at least.

I'm aiming for around 200lbs for when the weather warms up, so you'll eclipse me a 220. Good thing I'm prettier.
